AFL 2022: Buddy Franklin’s daughter Tullulah waves during Grand Final parade

Buddy Franklin’s daughter Tullulah waves to her AFL star dad during a Grand Final parade ahead of Sydney Swans’ showdown with Geelong

Buddy Franklin’s daughter Tullulah couldn’t believe her eyes when her AFL superstar dad was driven past during a pre-Grand Final parade in Melbourne on Friday.

The two-year-old was being carried by Buddy’s mother-in-law Valerie Campbell, with his excited wife Jesinta Franklin waving and cheering alongside them.

The beaming Sydney Swans great, 35, waved to his family while sitting on the back of a white Toyota Hilux before they were reunited at the end of the parade.

Jesinta, 31, greeted her husband with a kiss on the cheek, and the couple briefly hugged before Buddy took son Rocky, one, in his arms while Jesinta held Tullulah.

Tallulah wore a replica Sydney Swans guernsey with the word ‘daddy’ above her famous dad’s No. 23 on the back.

Jesinta opted for an all-black activewear ensemble plus a matching cap.

Rocky was also pictured wearing a replica No. 23 guernsey with his blond hair tied in a high ponytail that was reminiscent of his sister’s.

The Franklins, who married in 2016, are one of the AFL’s most famous couples. 

Jesinta, a former Miss Universe Australia-turned-fashion influencer, recently qualified as an accredited AFL player agent.

The Franklins' children both wore matching red and white Nike shoes in support of their dad, a key forward for the Sydney Swans, as well as No. 23 jerseys

Last week, Buddy shocked the football world by signing a one-year contract extension for the 2023 season.

His nine-year $10million deal with the Swans will expire at the end of the season, and his future had long been the subject of speculation.

The two-time premiership winner, however, put an end to the rumours himself on Monday evening with a succinct two-word statement reading simply: ‘One more.’

Buddy will play in his sixth Grand Final when the Swans take on Geelong on Saturday. Despite his many accolades in Swans colours, he is yet to win a premiership for the bloods having fallen short in both 2014 and 2016.
